Re: Firefox Favorites - FC1

Potentially dumb question.

Its my understanding Firefox stores its favorites in a file called
bookmarks.html.  The files I was able to locate called bookmarks.html
didnt have the bookmarks the users of the machine have saved...here's
the output of $slocate bookmarks.html :

***
/usr/bin/firefox/defaults/profile/US/bookmarks.html
/usr/bin/firefox/defaults/profile/bookmarks.html
***

These two files hold the standard Firefox favorites, but not any of the
ones we've saved (there are three users on this particular box).  I know
they're there, as when I launch Firefox as any of the users of this
machine, I see all of the favs.

Does FF house its bookmarks elsewhere? Thanks.

Yes, Firefox does store bookmarks in the profile directory: /home/username/.phoenix/default/...

Note that this will changes with Firefox 0.9 to:
/home/username/.mozilla/firefox/default/...

You should fine the bookmarks.html files you're looking for in there.
